THE WELLESLEY COLLEGE SYMPHONY 
ORCHESTRA. 

The orchestra lost a good many excellent p'ayers 
when 19 14 graduated, bu1 the vacancies have b :en 
filled and rehearsals of Schubert's Unfinished 
Symphony are going on busily. Miss Prall is 
first violin (concert-master). 

Miss Ayres (1914) who is doing graduate work this 
year, took up the 'cello tins summer and Miss 
Barker (1917) and Miss Helen Lyon (1918) have 
temporarily forsaken the violin in order to give the 
orchestra two violas. Thus we are stronger, better 
1 1. danced than ever before. 

Will not some students emulate these examples of 
College spirit by learning the cornet, clarinet and 
flute? H. C. Macdougall.

IN MEMORIAM. 

Katharine Coman. 
After long illness, borne with characteristic dignity 
and selflessness, and with rare patience, Katharine 



('(Milan, professor emeritus of economics and so- 
ciology, entered quietly into rest in the home she 
shared with Miss Bates on Curve street. Monday 
morning, January 1 1. 

Miss Com. ill's death brings In I he older members 
of the College community t he deep sense of loss and 
grief mingled with thanksgiving, always inspired b\ 

a noble life which has drawn to its earthly (lose. 

Her thirty-three years oi official service to the 

College Span almost the whole development ol 
Wellesley. Coming here in [880 from Ann Arbor, 
where she had been .1 friend ol Alice Freeman 
Palmer's, she began her work as instructor ol 
English; in 1883 she was made professor of history; 
and when I he Department of Economics and Soci- 
ology was separated from that of history, she was 
created head of the former. This position she 
retained till ill-health compelled her to retire in 
1913. Her large humanity illuminated her teach- 
ing, and former students all oxer the country will 
always remember their work under her with grati- 
tude. 

Her service to the College was far from being con- 
fined to her own department. In 1S99-1900 during 
the first year of Miss Hazard's administration, she 
acted as dean; and at all times her sanity of outlook, 
her wide sympathies, and her clear .mil simple 
courage gave her a power all her own in the ad- 
ministrative work of the Academic Council. 

Miss Coman's value to Wellesley, moreover, de- 
pended largelj on the breadth of her interests apart 
from it. Hers was a high type of American pa 
triotism, and mind and heart were given with un- 
conscious generosity to the promotion of American 
ideals. She spent her powers unstintedly on the 
College Settlements Association, especially on 
Denison House, and on the International Institute 
for Girls in Spain; while the wise and valiant part 
she played in the Garment Workers' strike three 
years ago in Chicago won the warm appreciation 
of her co-workers. 

It is this same loyal interest in the development of 
our national life which inspires her numerous 
writings: in particular her most notable books, .1-. 
for example, "The Economic Beginnings of the 
Far West," iiwo volumes, Macmillan, 1912). \i 
the time of her death she was working on an 1 11- 
dustrial History of New England, to which even 
until the past month the failing remnants of her 
strength were dedicated. 

She leaves us as the College she loves is entering 
on a new and, we trust, a richer phase of existent e; 
but the Wellesley of the fill ure will never forget t he 
gifts of the pioneer women, Susan Hallowell, Carla 
Wenckebach, Katharine Comari, and others, who, 
when opportunities were few rose with instinctive 
ease to the higher levels of scholarship and teaching, 
and helped in the creation of a true and worthy 
center of collegiate life and learning for women. 



NEWS FROM OTHER COLLEGES AND 
UNIVERSITIES. 



Helen Drake Heals. 

The class of 1916 of Wellesley College learns with 
sorrow of the death of one of its members, Helen 
Drake Beals, at her home in Stoughton, Massa- 
chusetts, on December 22, 1914. Her courage and 
strength of character will ever be remembered and 
admired. The loss is keenly felt by all her class- 
mates and we would extend to her family our sin- 
cere sympathy. 

We, therefore, resolve that a copy of this me- 
morial be sent to her family anil that it be printed 
in the Wellesley College News and entered in 
the records of the class.

MR. SCOLES' LECTURE. 



Mr. Percy A. Scoles, Oxford Extension lecturer, 
and editor of "The Musical Student," spoke in 
Billings Hall on Friday evening, January 8, on 
"The Golden Age of British Music." He said that 
this period, which extended from the middle of the 
sixteenth to the end of the seventeenth century, 
period of change in literature, architecture, 
and political conception, as well as in music. He 
traced the influence of the variou monarchs on the 
development of music, an 1 he declared that the 
period of the commonwealth • not, as has been 
repeatedly asserted, a non-musical one, a i pro 
by the fact that two such Puritan as Milton and 
Bunyan were intensely fond of music, and also bj 
the fact that more music was published during the 
eleven years of the commonwealth than during the 
eleven years prior to it. He pol e of the results of 
the French influence during the reign of Charles II, 
in the coming in of a lighter type of composite n. 

The musicians of the period vork was 

especially important were Dr. John Bull, William 

Bird, Giles Farnavey and Henry Purcell. The 

al forms of the period included anthems. 

madrigals, canons, "catches," and songs, and, 

arcely true of the songs 1 f the present day, the 
words of these were quite a wi rth singing as the 
music, and so beautiful that modern publishers 
have hunted up old mus'cal manuscripts, taken the 
words, and printed them simply as poems. The 
English musicians of this peril d excelled, also, as 
composers of instrumental music; w< re, in fact, ac- 
cording to Mr. Scoles, the discoverers of the art of 
instrumental o imposition. 

At the conclusion of the lecture, Mrs. Scoles 
played, as illustrate ns of the music of the period., 
Dr. Bull's "King's Hunt," and Giles Farnavey 's 
"A Toy," "His Humor," and "His Rest."

A LOOPHOLE. 

One girl came back from Christmas vacation 
with her mind in a turmoil. Christianity had 
failed in Europe. The United States was pro- 
fessing peace, and demanding further armament, a 
policy of militarism. Manufacturers of arms were 
exporting shiploads of war paraphernalia to Europe. 
1 hese facts were terribly irreconcilable with the 
ordered state of things. Life seemed made oi 
turbulent extremes, and she could find no sane 
mean. During the first week, in a class discussion 
on a certain essay, the idea was brought out that 
moral principles can't be preached, that the moral 
nature is perfected by the quickening of the imagi- 
nation and the enrichment of the understanding. 
I he Sunday sermon gave the same thought in 
different form: — Christ did not convert men by 
arguing with them, but by the inspiration of his 
own e very-day life. 

rhese two ideas chased each other around in 
the girl's mind. She felt their significance just 
chiding her. Then suddenly the solution, which 
was floating in a nebulous state, condensed and 
precepitated itself refreshingly upon her doubts, 
which, were of an arid nature indeed. The simple 
conclusion was this: that no great idea ever "gets 
over," as an idea alone. It has to be identified with 
some great and forceful individuality, who can 
make the issue at stake a personal one for every 
man he reaches, in place of a theoretical one. Il 
is the power of personal example which counts, 
after all. Personality is the supreme and de- 
terminining factor in the propaganda of truth; 
precepts alone never win men's hearts. 

And so Christianity has not failed after all. 
■Rather, men are failing Christ, because their 
imaginations and sympathies are too weak and 
ill-nourished to assimilate the real significance of 
Christ's life. The anomaly of the at I il tide of the 
I nited States lies in the same weakness. We in- 
consistent!) Stand for peace, and profess to foster 
brotherhood, al the same time insisting frenziedly 
on armament, and allowing our commerce to reap 

olden profit from war supplies, for the simple 
reason t Ji.it we are as yet too undeveloped in our 
national moral nature to respond to the ideal of 
peace, which the personalities of Washington, 
fefferson and Lincoln have impressed forever on 
the national standards. Their personalities are 
as impotent as that of Christ — but the blame is 
ours, not theirs. 

I In - i- not a solul ion, of i oui se 1 1 is only a 
rather encouraging loophole through which to view 
the future. It is helping one girl to face it : ni,i\ In 
it • ill help you, too. If life n olves itself finally into 
simple personality, ue may thank a kind provi- 
dence that we all, at least, have thai, lo make or 
mar. And the future i- in our hands. 



Till; CONVENTIONAL ATTITUDE. 



"When in doubt be conventional," — this advice 
iring in a recent numbei of I ife" seems to 
l-e particularly appropriate al this time. Just 
from vacation, a trifle lazy, perhaps, it i- thi 
most natural thing possible to fall into i he conven- 
tional mi' nude. In fai I we seldom | 

it," but adopt the attitude unthinkinj I 



and as a matter of course. It is very easily ac- 
quired, — a frantic counting of the days before 
midyears, a glib rehearsal to long-suffering friends 
of quizzes and papers due, a hasty searching of the 
examination schedule with a bemoaning of the fact 
that our examinations are unfortunately arranged — 
these are a few of the details which make up the 
conventional attitude. It has even become tra- 
ditional for many of us. We do not stop to form 
a sensible personal idea upon the subject, but slip 
easily into those so handily provided for us. For 
this very reason the "conventional attitude" spreads. 
We are stimulated by others to tell of our bus) 
week, and such an enjoyable occupation it proves 
that we soon find that from campus to village, 
each house is crowded with overworked students, 
who strangely enough seem to have plenty of time 
to narrate their woes. While by no means universal, 
the attitude referred to is worthy of notice. 

It is, of course, foolish to suppose that this time 
of the college year is not exceptionally busy. It 
is, on the other hand, possible to make it business- 
like, not pointlessly energetic. Early in the summer, 
magazines and newspapers begin their "safe and 
sane Fourth empaigns." In the same spirit the 
News humbly begs for a safe and especially sane. 
midyear "celebration" by the abolition of the 
"conventional attitude" and the substitution of a 
common sense and business-like one. 

It is both possible and practical to begin our 
reviews and complete our papers before the last 
available afternoon. In fact, if we are trying to do 
scholarly work, it is inconsistent with our purpose 
"to leave things to the last moment" rather than 
to do methodical and systematic work. 



THE OUTLOOK UPON LIFE AFTER TWEN- 
TY YEARS IN A SETTLEMENT. 



On Sunday afternoon, January io, Dr. Graham 
Taylor, of the Chicago Commons, addressed the 
tnciiibersof the College Settlements Associat ; on and 
their friends in Billings Hall. As a subject, Dr. 
Taylor took some of his experiences in settlement 
work, and the conclusions he has reached after 
twenty years' residence in the Chicago Commons. 

This settlement, now in its twenty-first year, is 
unique in being the first social center in which a 
family has taken up its residence. The experiment 
has proved such a success in the Taylor family t hat 
I )r. Taylor said he could speak for all the members 
of his family in declaring that no one of them would 
take back a single week spent in the ('ominous, 
I" i hi e "f the enrichment of their lives by set" ii e 

and by friendships with people all up and down the 
call "i i K iety. 
Beside enriching its own life, a family resident 
in a set ill mi nt ' nrichesthelifeof theneighborhoi d. 
H. cau e of its greater resourcefulness, a family can 
il" more good in a social center than a resident 



group of single workers of the same set. The family 
needs, however, to take care not to sacrifice its own 
life, else the purpose of investing it among its 
neighbors will be defeated, even as the ascetics of 
old became burdens to others when worn out by a 
life of sacrifice. The best results are obtained by 
establishing a close identification of the family's life 
with that of the people of the district, but, as Dr. 
Taylor said, there is no need of every family going 
to live in a settlement; such service can be rendered 
to a certain extent by homes everywhere. This 
branch of sendee, often overlooked, gives oppor- 
tunity for a greater happiness than is found in the 
s.lfish rut into which many homes fall. In this con- 
nection, Dr. Taylor referred to a remark he heard 
made by an old man in the Hull House district, 
when he said of Jane Addams: "She is more con- 
scious of everybody else than she is of herself." 

The problems of the social worker are not con- 
fined to his own neighborhood, but extend to the 
industrial world, which, in its modern development , 
brings about a breach between employer and em- 
ployee that is inconsiderate, inhuman and cruel, 
although not always intentional. Much of the 
charity and relief work of the present day would be 
unnecessary if the working man and woman re- 
ceived a square d?al — good surroundings, fair 
wages and consideration for age and sex. Among 
the people who are working to bring this about are 
three women whose work has been invaluable, — 
Mrs. Raymond Robb : ns, Florence Klley and Julia 
Lathrop. 

The problems of the industrial world ran be 
solved by the organizing ability, the sense of hu- 
manity and ideality given by a college course. 
In a way, service for the public good only pays 
back the debt we owe to the state or the public 
for our own education. The best end of a college 
education is found in some phase of public service, 
especially in this t : me, when America needs moral 
strength to hold up her ideals, to avoid war and to 
meet her "promissory notes" held by the world. 



WELLESLEY VILLAGE. 



Speaking of the Restoration Fund, we wonder 
how many Wellesley students realize that Welles- 
ley village has given very substantially to it. We 
regret that we have no figures to quote, but we 
cannot refrain from calling your attention to this 
evidence of good-will on the part of our near neigh- 
bors. Their generosity is the more remarkable 
when we stop to consider that this very fund to 
which they have given has directed a goodly pro- 
portion of our money away from business con 
cerns in the village, this year. 

In this connection it is worth mentioning that 
the business men of Wellesley met, during the 
vacation, with President Pendleton and Dean 
Waite, to try to promote a better feeling between 
the college and the business men of the village. 
This meeting seems to have served in the same 
way th.it a college forum does as a clearing-house, 
tor, as one of the men who was present said, "il 
was a pleasant and satisfactory evening." 



FACULTY NOTE. 



The December meeting of the Faculty Science 
Club was a reception in honor of Dr. Scmple. 
lecturer in the Department of Geography. Pro- 
fessors Robertson and Hubbard, as the program 
committee of the club, received in the south room 
of the Observatory. The committee of arrange 

incuts were Professor (".race Davis and Miss I.. I!. 
Allen. The twenty-five members present greatl) 
enjoyed this opportunity of talking informally 
with Miss Scmple.

THE WELLESLEY COLLEGE NEWS. 



MISS GRACE DODGE. 



During vacation, we were shocked to read of 
the sudden death of Miss Grace Dodge on De- 
cember 27. Since Miss Dodge was one of the most 
prominent women philanthropists and educators 
of the day, and since she was also the president of 
the great national organization of the Young 
Woman's Christian Association, of which our 
College Christian Association is a part, it will not 
be amiss to speak briefly here of her position and 
attainments. 

For a great main years Miss Dodge lias been 
working along various lines for the betterment of 
women. She was one of the founders of Teachers' 
College, — now an important part of Columbia 
University. At one time she was president of the 
Association of Working ('■iris' Clubs. She had a 
great deal to do with the founding of the Travelers' 
Aid Society, for the protection and assistance oi 
young girls coming alone to the city. She has 
served on the New York Board of School Com- 
missioners. At the time of her death she was presi- 
dent of the Board of Trustees of the American 
College for Girls in Constantinople. 

Her most unique work, however, has been the 
unifying of the various Young Women's Christian 
Associations under one National Board. She 
formed the national organization, gave two hundred 
and fifty thousand dollar- toward the fine building 
and training-school on Lexington avenue, and has 
been the effective president for main years. She 
was a tireless worker, taking only two week-' 
vacation in the year, from her countless responsi- 
bilities. The association has been stunned by her 
death, for it seems impossible to find anyone to 
take her place. There are not many that can leave 
such a record as Miss Grace Dodge, of great ideal-, 
-el working through fruitful organizations, of pi 1 
sonal wealth and health unsparingl} expended, 
and of real, practical good accomplished. 



SUNDAY MORNING CHAPEL. 



Bishop Lawrence preached at Sunday morning 
eh. ipel service, January 10. The text was drawn 
from the interview of Nicodemus, the rich young 
ruler, with Jesus and hi- final conversion to the 
Christian faith. After a paraphrase of the familiar 
story, he applied iis principles to life in general. 
Many people, brought up in religious environment. 
have been estranged from the faith in other groups 
of life. Nevertheless, they are still looking back 
at it, but still are unwilling to be included. The 
vital question to -day i- how to reach them. There 
are three step- to be taken and these are the three 
which Christ took to win Nicodemus. First of all, 
1 la Master's own personal conviction of the right, 
which is worth far more than logic. In (lie second 

place, the Master's love of truth and justice. Last- 
ly, the spirit of self-sacrifice, rhrough a personalis

ENGAGEMENT. 



CHRISTIAN ASSOCIATION MEETINGS. 



Campus Meeting. 

A goodly number turned out to the meeting on 
the first night of the new term, which was led by 
Margaret Dickey Griffin, 1915. Miss Griffin read 
a selection from Maltbic Babcock's "Thoughts for 
Every-Day Living," and then spoke briefly on the 
relation of our College work to our life at home, 
taking as a basis for her remarks. Psalm 1 19 : 34. 
"Give me understanding (or intelligence) and I 
shall keep ili\ law, — yea, observe it with my whole 
heart." Our main duty is intelligence. We are 
too apt to leave our knowledge' behind us in the 
class room, instead of profiting by it as we might, 
in our every-day life at home. With this in view, 
we should elect courses which will have some 
bearing on our life, and, having elected them, use 
them for the increase of our practical intelligence. 

Village Meeting. 

The message of the meeting in St. Andrew's 
Church on January 6, was appropriate to the first 
gathering of the new year. The leader was Rebei ca 
E. Meaker, 1916. The subject: "Israel became 
like that thing which she loved." We, too, are 
building character here at College. Not merely 
heredity, environment, or fate is governing our 
lives; we ourselves mold our lives after what we 
love. But how are we doing it? God has entrusted 
us with a command and responsibility to love 
righteousness. Now, at the beginning of the year 
is the time to stop and decide what we are going 
to be like, for what we care about at College will 
influence our whole luture. 



CORT. 

Owing to the enormous demand for seats for the 
I 1 -1 two weeks of the record-breaking run of "Peg 
0' My Heart" at the Cort Theater, Boston, the 
management announces an additional week be- 
ginning Monday, January 18. This will positively 
be the last week for " Peg," as Morosco's charming 
comedy must give way to John Cort's latesl mu- 
sical farce, "What's Going On," which Mr. Cort 
postponed for a week in order to meet the demand 
of the Boston and suburban playgoers for another 

wee]. I il " Peg." 

An innovation for the last week will be a new 
scale of popular prices; for the evenings the best 
seats will lie at Si. 50 and the Wednesday matinee 
si.iiii. Adv. 

PLYMOUTH THEATER. 



Unless you make up your mind right now to see 
Cyril Maude, the notable English actor, appearing 
in "Grumpy" at the Plymouth Theater, Boston, 
you will mis- the biggesl theatrical treat Bo-ton 
ha- had in years. Win wait any longer? Mr. 
Maude will not appear in anj other New England 
city during hi- present American tour? "Grumpy" 
is a cleverly constructed play of love, romance, 
comedy and melodrama. — Adv.

AN ANTHOLOGY OF COLLEGE VERSE. 



invocation of Anthological Muse. 

Once more, ye chestnuts and once more, ye prunes, 
E'er yet your ripeness heraldeth your fall, 

I come to force you into jiggling runes 

And hurl you green, while yet your size is small, 

Upon the ever-waiting, gasping mobs 

Who, pushing, striving, rushing, doing jobs, 

Some wanton words of cheer await each week 

And in the P. of F. their portion seek. 

So, genius, lend an ear, an eye, 

A hand, a foot, a Moore's non-leakable, 

And in a gushing, steady stream 

Pour out true art, — verses unspeakable. 

Leave Kant's Epistomology, 

Compile me here a new Anthology 

Of College verse from earliest times till now 

But — mind you, — shun the bold high-brow. 

*Preface by the Compilers of the Anthology. 

I. Ancient Rune — Early Prehistoric Inscription 

found in the basement of College Hall. 

Thenn shalle ye College contentedlee laughe, 
Whenn one plus one millione maketh two and ye

Mercy's Derelict. Thoughl i<> be an original. 
Very crude at any rati'. 

COMPLEYNT TO AN EMPTY HEAD. 

Oh, vast unmeasured dome 

II limited 

And void of substance, 

Home 

Of space and transcendental gloom, 

Oh Room 

Unfurnished, swept as with a broom, 

And garnished well as with a mop, 

A place where thought n'er deigns to stop. 

Why dost thou sit apart 

On high — aloft, 

Nor deignest to soak in knowledge? 

Why art soft, 

Oblivious to all around, 

Mindful of but the dull necessity 

That daily doth encompass thee? 

Ah me! 

"Oh draw a circle round me thrice 

And close your eyes in wondrous dread, 

For I on Christmas sweets have fed 

And drunk of water made from ice," 

Ah me, again — 

A thing apart from those who know 

What it can be 

To wield — 

Wield what?

III. Pertinent Questions i\ Verse. 

Some students who claim that they love i<> cul cats, 

Have never been known to cut zoo. 

As for cutting their friends, it's beyond them, 

say; 
Pray, why do they pick and choose o 

They tell me that dances at Wellesley.are rare, 

And ye1 I wii . a week have I seen 

Girls going to dance — tango teas, I suppo 

At the gym. Oh, what can it mean? 

And social events. Has the grave N. A. C. 
Given special permission to these? 
For at four every day at the Coop, so they say, 
Miss Pendleton holds faculteas. 

If we're over sixteen land most of us are!), 

And as student- have valuable viewg, 

Why can't we, unhindered, share these with our 

friends 
And publish our views in the News?

IMPORTANT NOTICE. 



Unless notified to the contrary, students should 
take to examinations neither books nor paper of 
any kind. 

Blank books and not loose paper are to be used 
for examinations. These blank books will be fur- 
nished by the examiner in the classroom. 

Attention is called to the following legislation 
quoted from the "Official Circular of Information." 

"A student who is absent from an examination 
(or fails to hand in a final paper at the appointed 
time) must send a letter of explanation to the Dean 
not later than twenty-four hours after the close of 
tlie last examination of the examination period. If 
the reason assigned is judged adequate by the 
Academic Council, the student will incur a 'de- 
ficiency;' ii tin- reason is judged inadequate, the 
Student will incur a 'default' or 'condition.' II a 
student fails to make an explanation within the 
time specified, the ease will be treated as if the ex- 
planation had been inadequate." (See Part B, 
HI. 6.) 

"A student who has been present at an examina- 
tion long enough to see the examination paper 
will not be considered as absent from examination." 
(See Part B, III, 8.)

THE FUND NUMBER OF THE MAGAZINE. 



The editors plan to make the March number of 
the Magazine Supplement a celebration ol the 
Restoration Fund achievement. There was not 
time to arrange this for the February number, 
since the full report of the committee could not be 
made ready so soon. There will be interesting ac- 
counts of the fund-raising, as it went on among 
graduates and undergraduates, besides much other 
material which should make this number appro- 
priate to represent the first anniversary of the fire. 
The editors welcome any suggestions or contribu- 
tions of material toward making the number fully 
representative. Additional copies of this number 
will, no doubt, be desired by the Alumna-. Those 
who wish such copies should send earh notice to the 
News, since the supply of copies may not hold out.

WELLESLEY CLUBS. 



Early in October the members of the Detroit 
Wellesley Club received invitations to the first 
meeting of the year — an acquaintance tea on 

()(lol,er 7, at the home of the president, Ernestine 

Miller Fries, 1903. A most enjoyable afternoon was 

s|.< nt by those present, and a short time was de- 
\oted to discussing informally, plans for raising 
money for the Restoration Fund. A week or so 
later, the club held a business meeting at the college 
club, for the purpose of seriously considering methods 
for raising money. The most important of these 
was to bring Miss Christine Miller, a contralto of 
note, to Detroit in a concert on November 6. 

The concert was delightful, as Miss Miller is the 
possessor of a most beautiful voice as well as a 
charming personality. Since the concert we have 
held two social meetings at the homes of dilterent 
members and plan to continue these monthly meet- 
ings throughout the year. 

The fall meeting of the Chicago Wellesley Club 
was held Thursday, November 19, in the new col- 
lege club rooms and we were delighted to have over 
three hundred and fifty of our members and friends 
out for the occasion. The meeting opened with a 
short business session, Miss Osborn, the President,, 
in the chair, which was followed by a most interest- 
ing talk by Mr. Morse, who gave, quite in 
detail, the work and success of the Restoration and 
Endowment Committee, and also many of the 
proposed plans for the future of the College. It 
was indeed a great pleasure for the Chicago Club 
to have Mr. Morse as its guest. We were greatly- 
delighted with the moving pictures of Tree Day and 
the other festivities at College, which followed. 
The pictures are well worth the expense to any club. 

A regular meeting of the Philadelphia Wellesley 
1 lull was held at the College Settlement, 433 
Christian St., Miss Beale, the president, in the 
chair. After the reading of the previous minutes, 
Miss Eleanor Monroe gave an account of the 
Elmendorf Benefit, and announced the proceeds, 
after the heavy expenses were paid, as $484.20. 
L T pon motion, it was decided to add to this sum from 
the club treasury the sum necessary to make the 
total amount S500. A vote of thanks was extended 
to Miss Monroe and her committee for their ef- 
ficient work, and to Miss Darlington for her in- 
teresting and earnest appeal for Wellesley at the 
lecture. It was moved that a vote of thanks be 
also extended to Mr. Curtis for his generosity in 
giving the advertising space in the Ledger. 

Miss Scott, chairman of the committee for 
Restoration and Endowment Fund, told of the 
coming visits of Bishop Lawrence and Mr. Morse. 
A letter from President Pendleton, giving plans for 
the rebuilding, was read and made all more eager 
to help. 

Mrs. Raine and Miss Ring asked the club to help 
the Philadelphia Fund by buying their Christmas 
candy at Laurent's, and by coming to the dance, 
to be given at the Curtis Building, on December 2. 

Miss Anna F. Davies, head worker at the Settle- 
ment and Miss Marie D. Spahr, 1909, organizing 
secretary of the College Settlements Association, 
gave interesting talks on "The Settlement of To- 
day and Yesterday." 

The New \ "ork Wellesley Club has had two very 
enthusiastic meetings this year, both at the Women's 
University Club, both with an attendance of about 
two hundred and fifty. Mrs. Adwin G. Adams, 
president of the club, presided. 

At the first meeting, on October 17. Mrs. Ray- 
mond Fosdick read a report of the proceedings of 
the Graduate Council, last June. Miss Candace 
Stimson spoke of the progress of the Restoration

the war. 

The benefit given by the club for the- Restoration 
Fund, — the Wellesley-Princeton Glee Club con- 
cert at the Waldorf-Astoria the 28th of November, —

members of both the glee 1 lubs were having quite 
as good a time as the audience.) Financially the 
concert added $1,709 to the Restoration Fund.

At a meeting of the Columbus Wellesley Club, 
held at the home of Mrs. William C. Deems, De- 
cember 3, Mrs. Eleanor Hammond Means, 1904, 
wis elected Graduate Councillor for (he club. It 
was reported that something over $60 had been 
cleared at the Thanksgiving market, bringing the 
club's gifts, together with its pledges, to about one 
thousand dollars. 

The Utah Wellesley Club is made up of all the 
Wellesley girls in Utah, eleven in Salt Lake City 
and four outside. The meetings are held whenever 
the members have any news to impart or when 
they specially want to set one another; that means 
meetings at least twice a month. There is rarely 
any formal business. "What is the constitution 
among friends?" 

Mrs. C. P. Overfield, 1906, who represents the 
Endowment Fund Committee in Utah, has sent 
on our pledge for $500. This is raised by the profits 
on the Wellesley Cook Book, a bridge breakfast 
in June and the sale of a certain vanilla extract, 
usually obtainable only at the drug stores. It is so 
strong and of such exceptional purity that sales 



are quicklj made. There is also considerable 
profit. If any club desires further information 
about the sales, we should be glad to give it.
